My new job is rubbish

To be more precise it is waste and recycling, but I’ve been deploying that joke all day and I don’t intend to stop on my own blog.

Let me explain. Boris has made a few changes at City Hall to focus on delivery, as part of these changes he has asked me to replace him as the chairman of the London Waste & Recycling Board. A few years ago waste and recycling would have been seen as a no go area for a politician but these days it is recognised as the place where real innovation happens and serious public money can be saved.
As chairman I’ll be working with the other board members, London councils and the private sector to drive forward waste reduction and improved recycling in the capital. All this is subject to the ratification by the Assembly’s confirmation hearing some time in the next few weeks.

  1. can we please stop getting council information/propaganda leaflets/news papers etc. I have a suggestion – these can be made available on-line and people can be encouraged to subscribe to the online version of these information. May be by providing an incentive (say a one off £5 rebate in council tax if you subscribe to council papers online)
